May Portfolio Update

Click To Enlarge

My portfolio gains in the month of May came primarily from energy stocks during the second half of the month.  After reaching a peak early in March, prices for energy companies came back down to the 200-day moving average and may have put in a bottom.

Bonds began their usual summer rally early this year.  20 year plus U.S. Treasuries bottomed in February.  It remains anybody's guess whether we will see a significant pullback as a good entry point before summer's end.

Meanwhile gold seems to be the only thing showing promise, currently, as most sectors continue flat, or trending down.

Five month return for TSX @ May 31, 2011 = 2.88 percent
Five month return for Basic Timing Model using XIU = 2.27 percent
Five month return for Advanced Timing Model (my returns) = -3.76 percent
Money for charity = $411.27
